CCSD Nursing director wins award
The Clarke County School District’s Director of Nursing was honored by professional colleagues in Atlanta earlier this summer. WUGA’s Martin Matheny has more:
At their annual conference in late June, the National Association of School Nurses named Amy Roark as the Georgia School Nurse Administrator of the Year. CCSD director of public relations Cyndee Moore made the announcement at a school board meeting on Thursday.
"She was instrumental in helping guide the district's COVID-19 mitigation efforts, with the health and safety of our students and staff always at the forefront of her mind," Moore told board members. "And she has led the charge to expand community health resources in the district."
Roark joined the CCSD as a nurse in 2015 and was named director of nursing for the district the next year. She oversees a team of nurses across the district, including one nurse in each CCSD school.
